TOKYO — A memorandum of understanding (MoU) on a skills internship programme was signed on Saturday in Tokyo between Việt Nam’s Ministry of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs and IM Japan – the Japanese international human resources training agency.
The programme offers free-of-charge internship to candidates, IM Japan’s President Yanagisawa Kyoe told a Vietnam News Agency correspondent. 
IM Japan will provide training support to those who are eligible to complete five-year internships in Japan to open their own companies, he added. 
He also noted that those who perform well during the internship can receive a total of up to JPY5 million (about US$42,600). 
Both sides also signed a letter of intent on the possible participation of Vietnamese technicians in the programme. 
Currently, Việt Nam has nearly 200,000 unemployed university graduates, said Minister of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs Đào Ngọc Dung, adding that the letter of intent would be beneficial for both countries as it helps provide young Vietnamese workers for the Japanese market. 
He also praised IM Japan’s effort in sending 3,000 Vietnamese to Japan to work. 
It is an advantage as Vietnamese graduates possess skills, especially in the IT area, according to IM Japan’s President Yanagisawa Kyoe. 
The agency would ask the Japanese government to loosen entry visa requirements for those people and strive to carry out the commitments in the MoU, he said. — VNS
